What made me think of this topic is due to a conversation that I had with my boyfriend. He helped me to call attention to something I didn’t realize was a problem. That problem was that I tended to not always do what I say I’m going to do or doing what I want to do regardless of what others want. Hearing him say this really brought to my attention that I need work on this because it isn’t fair to those around me.
So now I’m wondering how I can solve this problem. Well maybe not solve but definitely work on it. I know that one of the things I plan to do is start to notice when I’m doing those things and stop it right away. This way I can correct that behavior before it becomes an issue.
I also know that there are other things that I need to work on like trying to listen to others more and also taking criticism better. But I know that this is a start.
So now I recommend that everyone think about something that they may need to work on. Also if you do think of something how do you plan to overcome this issue or resolve it? If comfortable comment down below and let me know. I’m interested to read everyone’s comments.
As I’m writing this I am so so tired. The night before I slept horrible due to having a panic attack. If any of y’all have had a panic attack before they are horrible and even after it’s over (at least for me) I can feel the effects for hours after. Mostly it’s just the fear of having another one. But I’m blessed that I got through it.
One thing though that I’m trying to focus on is trying to get healthier. I want to start working out more, drinking more water, and also eating healthier. I can drink more water and working out I can work on. But the eating healthier part is what’s hard for me. I love sweets a lot and I love cheese. So I’m trying to figure out the best way to go about these things.
For starters I plan to start working out in the mornings before work for maybe like 10-15 mins and also eating a healthier breakfast. I don’t really like oatmeal but I’m going to try and start eating it. My biggest problem is lunch and dinner. Typically I don’t eat lunch and when it comes to dinner my family orders out a lot.
So I want to know for those of you who have gone through this or currently are do y’all have any advice. Also do y’all have any healthy recipes that you could recommend. Preferably for lunch or dinner. I mean I can eat salads but that may get old really fast. So comment those down below and to be honest I’m terrible in the kitchen so easy recipes would be awesome.
But y’all have a great day and please remember that you are you for a reason!

I plan to post on there twice a week on Monday’s and Friday’s. But I also want to reach out to some of you on here and see what you would like me to talk about.

So I wanted to talk about being your true self because I’m sure that many of us change how we are depending on who we are around. Now I know sometimes we have reasons like if we are in a professional setting or things like that but I mean like holding back positive parts of ourself that we love about ourselves.
Now I know that we a lot of times can’t be our complete selves and a lot of times feel out the room to find out what is considered acceptable behavior. I think that’s okay but I mostly mean like holding back talking about positive hobbies or things like that. Trust me I know that talking about personalities and being yourself can go many different routes.
I can honestly say that I do this mostly because I know that I would be made fun of or looked at differently due to these parts. The parts I’m mostly talking about are the nerdy and talkative parts of myself. I let these parts out when I’m around people who truly allow me to be myself.
But there are certain people that I hold these parts back with. This is mostly because I’ve let these parts out before and I was either made fun of (friends) or told later that those parts made me seem childish (certain family).
Well I’m here to say that I’m learning overtime that I don’t care about what people say about these parts of myself. I truly love who I am and the personality that I have. If someone has an issue with that then that’s on them not on me.
Now I will say that there are moments where I still don’t feel comfortable with it depending on who the people are because it’s still a work in progress. But overall I’m realizing that the Lord made me this way for a reason and gave me this personality for a reason. So I should enjoy sharing it.
But have any of you ever felt this way? If so then what made you accept that part of yourself or what made you change? Plus do you have any advice for others? Comment down below!
So yesterday I got a chance to check out Beyoncé’s Homecoming special on Netflix and all I have to say is that it is amazing. The Netflix special pretty much gives you a behind the scenes look of Beyoncé’s performance at Cochella. It also goes a little more in depth to her pregnancy and birth of the twin Rumi and Sir.
You see how she picks the band, her dancers, her steppers and the reason why she decided to make the artistic decisions that she did. One of the things she says is that she wanted to bring our culture the black culture to Cochella for all to experience. She also chose the people that she chose so that all the people that felt that they didn’t fit in or were different were represented on stage.
It was definitely an amazing thing to see and it made me very proud to be not only black but also a black women. It made me feel powerful and proud to be who I am.
I definitely recommend other people to check it out if you can because it was definitely eye opening and also inspiring. I can also say that I think it will be inspiring to those that may not love her music because she has a way of touching everyone in some way.
So watch it on Netflix and check out her new album that also released on the same day under the same title as the Netflix special. Plus comment down below on what you thought of the special of you watched it or if you will watch it?
